Another type of tea, good for summer

Ishikawa Kanazawa
2-12, Hashibacho
Japan

The whole neighbourhood of Hasibacho in Kanazawa is somewhat renowned for sweets


I can not tell you what this place is called
-though the address is above-
but it was delicious, delightful and delicate


I thought the set included a very weak coffee
-later I learnt it was roasted barley tea-
which has a real note of caramel sweetness too

The tea is called in Japanese:
Rokujyo Ohmugi Mugicha

Here in Canberra it can be bought
in particpating Asian Grocery Stores


It's super easy to make
and very soothing to drink in the heat
